In the early 1940s, Superman was a much-needed hero for a nation on the brink of war. The Man of Steel (and the comic book medium) were in their Golden Age, and with each new story, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were continuing to expand and enrich the world of their still relatively-new creation. In these early adventures, Superman must protect the citizens of Metropolis from a variety of threats ranging from insurance scams and gangsters to spies and saboteurs. Plus, Lex Luthor returns to cement his place as Superman’s arch nemesis, with more schemes and gadgets than any other villain facing the Man of Steel!

There were now too many Superman stories for just one man to draw, so into the studio came some of the finest artists in the business, since this was the #1 best-selling comic book of its day. Here appear Wayne Boring, who would become the #1 Superman artist inthe 1950s; Jack Burnley, the man I feel was the most accomplished Superman artist of the 1940s, hands down; Paul Cassidy, Ed Dobrotka, Leo Nowak, Fred Ray (who went on to create and draw Tomahawk for many years), and John Sikela.

No fan should miss these great early adventures.
